Teenage girls would rather be a glamour model than a teacher

Teenage girls want to be glamour models, not teachers, doctors or nurses, a new survey has revealed.
As reported in Manchester Online, 63% of girls aged 15-19 would rather be glamour models than take up a profession such as teaching.
One quarter said that they thought lap dancing would be a good profession. Only 3% choose teaching.
The survey, which was run by www.thelab.tv, found that Jordan and Abi Titmuss are seen are role models, not JK Rowling and Germaine Greer.
The Lab spokesperson Fraser Lewry said: “Teenagers are witnessing the likes of Abi Titmuss and Jodie Marsh gracing the covers of their favourite magazines every day, so it is hardly surprising that they want to follow in their footsteps.
“Taking your clothes off is now more lucrative than ever and teenagers see it as a great way of making money and becoming famous.”
